Datalink Systems USA Inc. develops advanced GPS and Data processing software and hardware that works with a wide range of wireless networks including LMR. Cellular and Satellite. We can deliver low cost solutions, or advanced all encompassing solutions.


GPS TRACKING OF SCHOOL BUSES OVER LMR+WiFi
GPS tracking of School Buses over LMR networks using Digital or Analog radios is possible, however most School Boards or School Bus operators expect GPS location updates every one or two minutes. (Please read this additional comment)

This presents problems on shared voice channels if more than 25 school buses are to be tracked  per channel, as the GPS updates will interfere with voice transmissions. Dedicated channels and radios can increase the number of buses that can be tracked. As a rough guide, one dedicated channel can process 50 School Buses with two minute GPS updates.

A solution is to use Wi-Fi or  Cellular Networks. With Wi-Fi, where less important information such as GPS one minute trails are stored within an i50 MobiHUB and then downloaded when within range of a Wi-Fi authorized Hot-Spot. Only important events would be sent over the LMR Network, greatly reducing the usage of the channels.


KEY FEATURES

    KEY SELLING POINT.
    Fuel wastage by excessive idling. A Texas Gov' study proved that savings of around $4,500 per Bus per School Year can be achieved by restricting engine idling to 5 minutes. Datalink's i50 MobiHUB will monitor and report wastage. Read about it.

TRACKING OVER CELLULAR NETWORKS
When LMR channels are not available M2M Cellular tracking or Wi-Fi store and dump are the only choices. When using M2M high speed data networks, there is no limit to the number of buses that can be tracked at one minute updates with a Datalink i50 MobiHUB installed in the School Bus. The cost of M2M (Cellular data) service has dropped significantly over the past couple of years. Typical one minute GPS reports from School Buses can cost less than $5 (reseller) per Bus per Month.

Datalink's i50 MobiHUB can provide an advanced system with important information delivered immediately over Cellular or stored and downloaded over Wi-Fi.


INCREASE OPERATING EFFICIENCY
(It can reduce monthly operating costs from day one)
Installing a MobiHUB i50 terminal  in each bus can save the School Board hundreds of dollars per Bus every month by increased gathering of data such as wasted fuel through excessive idling, automatic engine fault reporting,  logging Driver's ON and OFF duty status. The MobiHUB i50 also allows more optional features such as RFID and Magnetic Strip Card readers for student tracking.

Engine computer data can be logged, with automatic alerts to the maintenance department, which can alert the department to potential engine failure and costly repairs. The i50 MobiHUB will also report bad driving habits and speeding. Click here for more information.

PUBLIC LIVE VIEWING OF SCHOOL BUS ROUTES
Live tracking of School Buses is an optional feature when operating Datalink's DataNET systems.  Parents and guardians can use their smartphones or computers to log into a public Web-Site to see the location of each School Bus on a Route Map. You can click here to view live Trolley Buses on Gatlinburg, tourist routes.
